Ghee is an ingredient in many Middle Eastern dishes. It is also called clarified butter. Ghee can be quite expensive in the stores; making it in your own kitchen is easy and inexpensive. You can store ghee in an airtight container on a pantry shelf.
- 1 pound unsalted butter
Using a medium saucepan, heat butter on medium heat.
Allow butter to melt and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. You will notice that the oil will separate itself. The top will begin to froth; remove froth.
Allow the oil to become clear. Once clear, remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
After cooling, strain ghee through a very fine strainer into container or jar, or through 3 to 5 layers of cheesecloth.
Place a lid on container and store on a shelf.
